Today I tried the Plickers app in class for the first time, I conducted a short plenary quiz with questions about the book we have been reading. It worked and the students loved it but….
I need to make some adaptations.
The students found it hard to hold the cards without covering the Code. I have ordered matt laminating sheets to give a bigger edge to grip and to stiffen them.
Some of the students (P level) struggled identifying the answer they wanted. Instead of ABCD as the options I am going to laminate symbols or images relating to the choices. These can be changed quickly and easily once prepared. I will post with an update once I’ve made them.
The small group size (7) meant I could individually capture each card or they could be laid on the desk but this is not as much fun.
I will be adapting and trying again next week.
